Concept: Mega bookstore and de facto play space for NYC kids, with a bright and friendly kids’ section, wide aisles, a changing table, air conditioning, and staff whose only request is that you treat the books gently. There’s also no charge to hang out (although it’s nice to buy a book every once in a while).

Goods for kids: Books, toys and games*, arts and crafts, music, movies, keepsake gifts, greeting cards.

Online ordering: Yes, with free shipping on orders over $25, and same day delivery in Manhattan on select items ordered before 11AM.

Other features: In-house café, Kids’ Club membership rewards.

*While the 5th Ave. location has a large children’s books section, it has a very small selection of toys.
